Hoodie Allen performed this track live on Fuse a few days ago, and today he released the studio single on iTunes, which is expected to be on his full-length studio album that is due out in the fall. This is definitely not the kind of music Hoodie is known for, but this is something that he always had in him and something that is a real nice change of pace for him.
Also, this is the first time I’ve been introduced to Kina Grannis, and I am pleasantly surprised. Kina went to USC and is a Youtube sensation who won a record deal with Interscope after winning the Doritos Crash the Super Bowl contest in 2010. Also, in 2011 she won Best Web Born Artist at the MTV O Awards. Be sure to check her out as well.
Be sure to check out the song below then check out the single on iTunes here.
For those of you who have been reading Catch My Bass since our inception, most people know how I used to feel about Drake (hated him/still just Jimmy from Degrassi) to moderate acceptance (I might not like him but other people to so oh well) to actually liking him (go back and listen to Take Care; absolutely beautiful). I’m not sure what happened to me and why this is the case, but in reality Drake’s slower tracks are R&B masterpieces. And Drake recently has been putting out more tracks not for the radio but more for just a chill vibe, which is exactly what is going on with this track.
First of all, truer words have not been spoken. Girls really do love Beyonce, way more than guys love Beyonce. Plus using Destiny Child’s “Say My Name” for a chorus is a really nice touch. As far as the track, super slow, chill and sexy, and Drake can seemingly do no wrong.
With Jay-Z recently dropping a fantastic lineup for this years Made in America Festival, troubles in Cuba and his departure from the Brooklyn Nets to peruse the business of sport agency he still had a little time to bless us with this master piece. “Open Letter” is Jay-Z’s newest track and the lyrics are fantastic. Listen for yourself! Enjoy!!
Over Twitter, Cam Meekins released his official music video for single “Inhale”. Obviously Cam does not have the video production of the biggest names in rap, but that doesn’t make this video any less effective. The song itself is kinda the way Cam has been going after his mixtape “:) :/ ):” with really thoughtful lyrics that really seem to tap into some more depressing teenage subject matter, like break ups, and even suicide.
It’s that thoughtfulness and realness that has fans gravitate towards him almost as Hoodie Allen does. Cam is working on his first Studio Album, and that should definitely make some noise.
I think you can make a pretty good argument that A$AP Rocky and Skrillex are the strangest musical pairing on a track within the past few years. I would give anything to know if they actually like each other, or are actually friends, because these guys are literally on different ends of the spectrum musically and style-wise. However, some are really thinking this is the future of dubstep, simply existing as a medium for great beats. Regardless, take the up and coming A$AP Rocky and arguably the most commercially successful Dubstep artist in Skrillex and you are going to get a good song.
Just yesterday, the official music video was released for their track “Wild for the Night”, which was shot in some impoverished sections of the Dominican Republic with a lot of locals, especially children with machine guns and flipping off the crowd while riding motorcycles.
Honestly, it’s a decent video but there is one thing I cannot shake; how out of place does Skrillex look in this entire thing. He is the only white person in the entire video full of African-Dominicans, Latino-Dominicans, and A$AP Mob. When there is the line “riding around with my n****s” and there is a close up of Skrillex I lost it.
Basically, this video gives me a lot of questions. Is this going to inevitably hurt A$AP’s street cred? Is Skrillex entering the rap community as a viable figure?
CMB TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK!!!! What’s your opinion on this video and just A$AP and Skrillex working together in general. Leave a comment. Fuel a discussion!
Welp, it’s finally here, the much anticipated follow up to Hoodie Allen’s first album All-American. We have a FREE mixtape available off of his website Crew Cuts.
Simply head to http://www.hoodieallen.com/ and download. Just another reason why Hoodie sets himself apart. He’s big time now, but not big enough to give his fans some free love.
Go Check it out!
Lil Wayne, Drake and Future team up to create a pretty sick video for their newest song ‘Love Me’. This song has literally been on the radio non-stop and it has become one of my favorites from Lil Wayne recently. The sound of Future is a lot different but defiantly fits with Drake’s quick verse in the chorus. Overall the video is pretty cool some skateboarding, creepy looking imagery and of course plenty of women. Enjoy!
